Welcome to Sosian the Luxury Safari Lodge
Immersed in the natural wilderness, far removed from landscapes tainted by the human touch lies Sosian Lodge. Sosian is a luxury safari lodge with the vast expanse of 24000 acres of the Laikipia Plateau surrounding it. The unfenced private lodge covers seemingly endless stretches of open landscape, therefore home to a very diverse set of different ecosystems.
The safari lodge itself is a 1940’s renovated and restored African ranch house. Comprising four cottages overlooking Mt Kenya and miles of unspoiled, breathtaking African landscapes, the safari lodge is a remarkable sight.
Guests staying at the lodge have the privilege of a range of activities at their disposal. The most popular of which are horseback and walking safaris. Galloping across the spectacular landscape is one of the most natural and unobtrusive ways to view Laikipia wildlife; an indescribable experience that most larger reserves and national parks do not permit. Those partaking in walking safaris in the bush can experience tracking of predators due to Sosian’s involvement with the Laikipia Predator Project. The project aims to promote and protect the harmonious simultaneous use of the landscape between Samburu herdsmen and lions. As well as this, other activities guests can enjoy are camel riding, cattle ranching, game drives, fly camping and fishing. This is in addition to leisure activities in the lodge itself such as using the pool and swimming in the waterfall.
Laikipia has the second largest population of elephant in Kenya as well as the only growing population of Wild dog. There are 350 species of bird that can be spotted surrounding the lodge as well as over 70 species of mammals including oryx, Grant’s gazelle, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and giraffe.
Sosian Lodge also lies at the junction of different tribal areas in Laikipia. Samburus, Pokots and Turkanas all live in the area surrounding the Lodge. Consequently, guests can request a visit to a local Samburu village to learn all about their culture and traditions, a way of life that modern civilisation has yet to taint. Experience all aspects of a traditional safari with Sosian Lodge for a truly unforgettable trip of a lifetime.
